Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Chron., xxii: 9-10)--' Behold, a son shall be borne to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.' These words were spoken of Solomon the son of David, and Jesus Christ is a direct descendenant of David, and the throne of an everlasting kingdom was established not by Solomon but by Christ. The Tower of Antonia is the first station in the Via Dolorosa, the sad and mournful way over which Jesus walked from the Sanhedrim to Calvary. This tower is also called Pilate's Judgment Hall. The holy steps that led to the hall, and which were said to be trodden by the feet of Jesus, were removed to Rome and may now be seen in St. John Lateran Church." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
